First Day as Lead


6:17 am

A beating heart.

Warm Legs.

Cold Toes.

My life goes on.

Despite the negative twenty degree temperature, my night was pretty good. My training as lead began and already I had to make some decisions. I'm just glad nothing went wrong today and I hope today goes just as well.

In my mind, I'm trying to calm down my thoughts. Each day they get a little better and better, but not like at Maling. I really would silence all thoughts, and when I'd let them come back. It would feel like a tidal wave coming down a hallway. Now, I usually quiet my thoughts for a few minutes at a time before they start creeping back in. A little bit of progress is better than no progress.


What will you throw at me?

The tired worker,
